Judgment No. 412
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The material provision empowers the Director-General at his discretion to authorise officials to work half-time. "The reasons given for the application should be well founded, but this is not the only [requirement]: [...] the authorisation to work half-time should be fully in the interests of the [organisation]. In other words the Director-General enjoys wide discretion: he will exercise it first and foremost in the light of what the [organisation's] interests demand."
